How much is the Environmental Handling Fee?

If any item(s) being purchased are subject to the Environmental Handling Fee (EHF), the amount will appear in the "Checkout" after all your item(s) have been added to the "Cart" and also will appear on your invoice.

These fees are based on to which province in which the item(s) are being delivered. These fee(s) will then be collected by Visions Electronics and submitted to that province or territories.
